We will provide a complete training programme

When you join Blue for a training course we first meet up for an informal chat, discuss your requirements and timescale that you would like to complete the course by.

The Training

The training starts with one to one in car, so all the attention is focused on you the trainee, every session is recorded and you are given a signed copy of all course material for that day, and of course the training is spread over several weeks or months, depending on your availability.

Trainee Licence option

It may be an idea if your current work timetable allows to offer you a driving instructor trainee licence at this stage, on either a part-time or full-time basis to allow you to acquire additional experience training actual learners. Not only does this help you prepare for the Part 3 instructional exam , it will also provide a way to earn an income during the training process, and this licence can be valid for 6 months.
